Agricultural Systems Advisory Board

Agricultural Systems Advisory Board (ASAB)

Unique to IoT4Ag, we have established an Agricultural Systems Advisory Board (ASAB) representing voices of the end-user grower community. ASAB members provide our Center with a “boots on the ground” perspective regarding grower needs and priorities, and potential barriers for technology adoption that must be considered and addressed.  In concert with the IPAB, the ASAB helps us balance “tech push” vs. “industry pull”, guiding the direction of Center research, workforce development, and diversity and culture of inclusion activities.
